Tirailleurs Senegalais & Cuirassiers, early WW1


This picture was on the Facebook page of World War One. I don't know where he finds these photos but I thank him for so doing.

A terrific photograph showing Senegalese Tirailleurs in discussion with two Cuirassier Officers. No date given. The cuirassiers are almost timeless but the tirailleurs wear the M1898 jacket and breeches and the khaki canvas gaiters issued in August 1914.
